Once I get over how expensive lodging is on Cape Cod, I have a great time. The beaches are amazing--and there is great variety therein--and so many options for activity or inactivity. If you can't swing renting a house for a week, The Lighthouse Inn is a great bet for a quintessential Cape Cod experience. The pro's: great waterfront location... More

Great location, excellent kitchen from what we experienced at a beachside wedding. Every 12 hours unfortunately,low tide exposes tidal flats and the smell can be overwhelming. Would be great off season, or if you stay inside - but the prices are rather high. Beach is somewhat limited as they give over a large amount of frontage to jet ski marina... More

We booked at the last minute and made the right choice. For a family of four the room was clean, large and appointed nicely, nothing fancy. The bathroom could have been better stocked, you may want to bring your own shampoo & conditioner... but having a second sink outside the bathroom was very helpful. The beds were comfortable and the... More

Relaxing and family oriented! Rented out all 6 rooms in the "Lodge" cabin and had dinner catered in the main dining room. Fantastic lobster clam bake. Lovely table set up and ocean view, attentive staff. Lots to do during the day with or without kids.

We stop here most times when we visit cape cod. This time the weather was spectacular and we ate outside. We enjoyed watching the people on the water sports and relaxed before we had to head home. Another hidden gem.

We had a great visit with our 12 and 10 year old girls for 5 nights this month. The girls spent most days playing on the beach close to our cottage, and i took them on the available water trampoline, kayak rental and jet ski rental to keep them amused. No issues with the cottage, which worked great for us... More

Earlier in July, I had planned with the manager at the Lighthouse Inn restaurant, a luncheon for a large group of residents from our retirement community. Not only was the planning effortless and well done, but so was everything on the day of our luncheon. We had a pre-arranged, all-inclusive menu and the food that everyone ordered was perfectly done.... More

We were at the lighthouse inn for a wedding and family reunion. I rented a two bedroom cottage. We had some issues, no air conditioning and ants, but the head of maintenance was very quick to remedy the problems. The ant problem Had to stay since we had a baby and did not want them to spray.

Upon arrival on Friday at noon treated like royalty. Oceanfront cabin available as requested. Room clean, sparkling. Beds very comfortable. Exceeded expectations. Granddaughters 9 and 7 had run of facility. Staff exceptionally accommodating fulfilling every request. Lunch on the porch overlooking the ocean. Menu more than sufficient to satisfy all-age appetites. Owner came to table, welcoming us and engaging grandchildren... More
